III-rd Invasion of a Cosplaying Event

Last weekend, a medium-sized, two-day otaku event was held in Penang Times Square, attracting many comrades and clueless public for a visit since entry is free of charge! ^_^

Cosplay Invasion III was organised by collaborations of many like-minded groups and features guests such as illustrator/cosplayer Shirahane Nao-sensei aka DMYO-sensei, cosplayer Stayxxxx and cosplayer Onnies.

Wait… DMYO-sensei cosplays!? Isn’t DMYO-sensei the one behind those lovely illustrations of Danny Choo’s Suenaga Mirai?

Oh yes, I was quite surprised too when I saw her in Hatsune Miku cosplay (You can catch a glimpse at her just behind Stayxxxx’s Hatsune Mikuo here in this piccie, which I haven’t realised it was her at the time of the shot…) during my brief visit… =w=

Pole Position

Hatsune Miku has enjoyed much popularity over the years ever since her début as a virtual idol, taking up many positions such as being an official  race queen for Good Smile Racing for the past few years.

While GSR has offered the public a chance to sponsor their favourite virtual idol in the GT races, it was only available to the Japanese for the past yesteryear.

Sponsors are usually given an assortment of limited Racing Miku merchandise for the year, especially the much sought after Figma and Nendoroid versions of the Racing Miku besides the usual straps, stickers, personal sponsorship cards and other stuffs…

Spotted at Good Smile Company’s booth during AFAMY12, Racing Miku version 2012’s elegant futuristic design caught my eyes, grabbing my heart with her almost impish grin… And I told myself this: I definitely must get a Figma version of her!

Heroic Knight in Shining Armour

Ever since the first movie adaptation of Iron-Man back in the year 2008, many fans of the armoured Marvel superhero has cried out for action figures of the Man in the Iron Mask

Hong Kong based figure meister Hot Toys first attempted this with much success (Ruling out the weak quality Western based makers like Hasbro and others), fusing incredible sculpt with top-notch articulations and gimmicks, not to mention the lifelike paint job and rendition of the face of the actor himself in figure form!

Unfortunately, incredible quality calls for incredible pricing, which simply not affordable to the masses…

Until Revoltech’s intervention last year with an action figure of their own… ^_~

Of Dollfies and Dreams: Musume-tachi of AFA11

Last Anime Festival Asia 2010, Kareshi Kanojyo no Mise (A popular local hobby store specialises in anime merchandise and gifts) loaned a part of their display booth to visiting Musume-tachi, drawing the attention of curious crowd…

Since Tama-chan arrival, Tama-chan has been eager to join the rest of them musume-tachi on display this time around in AFA11, but the plan was backfired when rumours of KKnM no longer sponsoring a DD booth this year surfaced earlier this Earth Cycle…

Just as Tama-chan was about to give up, Goshujin-sama’s comrade (an Imperial InnovaDDo) shone a blinding light of hope upon the withered shippo of Tama-chan: The DD Display Booth is a go!
